Earlier this week, Joe Biden traveled to Pennsylvania, making a stop at the Mack Truck facility along the way.
During the appearance, Biden told onlookers, “I used to drive an 18-wheeler, man.”
There is absolutely ZERO proof to back up that claim.
He Rode in a Truck… Once
Here is the audio of Biden talking to facility workers, once again making up a claim to pander to his audience…

This has been extensively researched by the RNC and they could find absolutely nothing to back up Biden’s claim.
The only experience that Biden had that came remotely close was, in 1973, he rode in a truck to understand the experience of transporting goods.
Then-Senator Biden (D-DE) traveled from Delaware to Ohio, a 536-mile one-way trip.
He flew back.
When the White House was asked to back up the claim, representatives pointed to the article referencing Biden’s journey with the trucker.
Two things here…
First, the tone of his comment made it sound as though Biden did this for a living at some point, which we all know is false.
Second, “driving” a truck and “riding” in a truck are two different things.
A dog can ride in the truck, but he sure as hell can’t drive it… and neither did Biden, EVER.
The White House then pointed to the fact that Joe Biden drove a school bus as a summer job, but again, that is not an 18-wheeler.
School buses generally have six wheels, not 18.
He lied, blatantly lied, and the White House is so intent on covering up his lie that they are now trying to equate a school bus to an 18-wheeler.
It may seem like something silly to rail about, but the fact is Joe Biden tells lies like this just about every day of the week and he never gets called out on them by the mainstream media, yet they kept a database of literally every word that came out of Trump’s mouth to fact-check.
